  1. Post update

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    Worth mentioning that these two clubs have now picked up 97 bookings between them since August.

    That's some serious cash going out of pay packets in fines.....

  2. YELLOW CARD

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    Much like the start of the first period Boca are taking this right to River Plate at the start of the second half.

    Leonardo Jara launches a long throw into the penalty area and Ramon Abila goes down as the ball bounces around but that's a dive all day long - out comes the yellow card.

  3. KICK-OFF

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    Here we go again. We're back underway.

  4. Post update

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    Rafael Borre and Gonzalo Martinez

    If I could pick out one image that sums up that first half this one of River Plate duo Rafael Borre and Gonzalo Martinez would be quite apt.

    No I don't know how you're behind either boys.

  5. Post update

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    In case you're wondering about the reaction to Dario Benedetto's goal for Boca - this sums it up nicely.

  6. HALF-TIME

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    What a great half of football. It helps considerably when neither team can defend though.

  7. Post update

    Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    The Boca fans enjoyed that.

  8. GOAL - Boca Juniors 2-1 River Plate

    Dario Benedetto

    When you are defending like Boca are, the best form of defence is clearly attack.

    Dario Benedetto does well initially to win a free-kick but what the visiting defenders are doing thereafter I have no idea.

    It's along ball pumped straight down the middle of River penalty area and Benedetto just flicks the ball on from around 8-10 yards out into the top corner.

  9. Post update

    Boca Juniors 1-1 River Plate

    I make that at least five good chances for River Plate this half. Boca are all over the place at the back.

  10. Post update

    Boca Juniors 1-1 River Plate

    Every time River come forward they look like they are going to score.

    This time Rafael Borre gets in down the right but Boca keeper Agustin Rossi deserves a huge pat on the back from his teammates.

    He comes out, rushes Borre and the forward prods his effort wide of the left post.

  11. YELLOW CARD

    Boca Juniors 1-1 River Plate

    That's crude, and that's a yellow for Boca full-back Leonardo Jara who hacks down Gonzalo Martinez

  12. GOAL - Boca Juniors 1-1 Rover Plate

    Lucas Pratto

    Lucas Pratto celebrates

    What. A. Response.

    River are level and in less than 30 seconds. Lucas Pratto escapes his marker Carlos Izquierdoz and steers a low shot in to the far corner, from the right hand side of the penalty area. Lovely finish.

  13. GOAL - Boca Juniors 1-0 River Plate

    Ramon Abila

    Ramon Abila

    Now then if you are going to give someone like Ramon Abilia two bites of the cherry what do you expect.

    The forward smashes his first shot straight at Franco Armani who frankly has to do better. The ball comes back to Abila who has a second go and this time it finds the back of the net.

  14. Post update

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    As I was saying....

    Dario Benedetto scored 24 goals in 28 games a couple of season back for Boca.

    And he bagged eight goals in nine games last term before rupturing anterior cruciate ligament against Racing Club.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    Cristian Pavon is toast. Or more to the point his hamstring looks to be.

    The Argentina forward limps off to be replaced by Dario Benedetto who is a pretty useful replacement.

  16. Post update

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    The first sign of a little bit of aggro.

    River Plate's Milton Casco takes exception to a crunching tackle from Boca right-back Leonardo Jara and a lot of pushing, shoving and finger pointing follows.

  17. Post update

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    Not good news for Boca, Cristian Pavon their 22-year-old Argentina forward has just pulled-up clutching his thigh.

    They wouldn't want to lose him so early in the game.

  18. Post update

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    Forget home advantage and the partisan crowd, the River Plate players have put all that to the back of their minds.

    They are looking silky smooth every time they counter cutting right through the hosts.

  19. GREAT SAVE!

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    The visitors could be two goals to the good here. But Agustin Rossi comes to the rescue for Boca again.

    There's not too much to fault from Rafael Borre's glancing header but the Boca keeper does well to tip it to safety.

  20. Post update

    Boca Juniors 0-0 River Plate

    Ramon Abila looks a real handful for Boca up top. He's chasing every ball and giving River Plate's veteran defender Jonatan Maidana one or two things to think about.
